Welcome to the third tutorial for my Zombie Princess Party! Don’t miss the super-easy how-tos for the zombie soda bottles and Princess Creepy Teeth, our dining table centerpiece. Today, I’m showing you how to make “bloody” napkins. Do zombies technically bleed? I’ll admit: I didn’t do a lot — well, any — research into zombie lore before creating my party. So in my world, zombies bleed. Zombie experts, please be kind.

Supplies

Instructions

1 – Pre-wash your napkins. It will help them take the paint. (Okay, this is not a photo of me washing napkins. My laundry room is really not that exciting.)

2 – If you are mixing paint and textile medium, just follow the instructions on the textile medium bottle.

3 – Paint your kiddo’s palm bright red.

4 – Plop that palm on one corner of your napkin and gently and evenly press down.

5 – Help your child lift her hand cleanly off the napkin.

6 – This part would work better if you can do it outside, which I couldn’t the day I made the napkins. Take your brush, dip it in a generous amount of paint, and alternately drip and splatter it on your napkin.

7 – If you are working outside and can really fling your paint in a creepy, blood-spatter way, awesome. If not, do what I did and plop your fingers in your paint blobs and drag down the napkin to create a bloody smear.

And that’s probably the grossest-sounding party tutorial I’ve ever written! (Except did you see the one about the rats?)

Here are the napkins on my party table. I tied them in faux pearl necklaces since this was a princess zombie party. I can’t say that my party guests ever make much use of their napkins, but this time we had a soda spill, so at least one actually got used. Small victories!
